Foreword 



With the enactment of the health insurance pro- 
gram for the aged (Medicare), it became possible for 
the first time to organize a continuing information 
system to report the use of health care services by 
older Americans. Since Medicare began, one of the 
basic tasks has been to process and pay claims for 
covered medical services submitted by or on behalf of 
all aged persons who are entitled to hospital insurance 
benefits and those voluntarily enrolled for supple- 
mentary medical insurance benefits. From this op- 
eration come data on the amount, kind, and cost of 
medical services used by the aged. 

This report is one of a series of publications de- 
signed to disseminate such data on a regular basis. 
For 1967, this report provides statistical information 
on the total use of reimbursed services for each per- 
son insured under Medicare. To follov^^ will be other 
reports in the series detailing information on utiliza- 
tion of medical care services. A listing of these reports 
appears inside the front cover. The reports are in- 
tended to give a comprehensive account of the 
amounts reimbursed under the program, the kinds of 
services paid for, the variations in utilization and 



reimbursement by age, race, and sex of the benefici- 
ary, as well as his place of geographic residence. Such 
data will ultimately demonstrate the patterns of med- 
ical care in the United States for persons aged 65 and 
over. A fuller understanding of these patterns will 
contribute to improved health services not only for 
the aged but for the general population as well. 

Many individuals in the Social Security Admin- 
istration have assisted with the development of this 
series. The preparation of the reports is a function of 
the Division of Health Insurance Studies of the Office 
of Research and Statistics under the supervision of 
Howard West, director, and Aaron Krute, deputy 
director. Important contributions to the planning of 
this series were made by Lillian Guralnick, who also 
prepared the text of this report. Contributions to the 
tabulation and presentation of the statistical content 
of this report were made by Irving Goldstein, Ger- 
trude Kousz, Willard P. Hess, and Charles G. Scott.

Data, Bureau of Data Processing.

The Statistical System 



This publication is a section of a statistical report 
series produced from Medicare program records. Pre- 
sented on a calendar year basis, describing services 
rendered in the year, the series includes sections on 
enrollment, characteristics of providers, inpatient 
care in hospitals and extended care facilities, outpa- 
tient hospital services, home health services, physi- 
cians' and other medical services, and overall summa- 
ries. 

The primary objective of these reports is to provide 
data required to measure and evaluate program oper- 
ation and effectiveness. Benefit payment operations 
furnish information about the amount and kind of 
hospital and medical care services used by persons 
aged 65 and over, as w^ell as the expenditures for such 
services. The applications by hospitals, extended care 
facilities, home health agencies, and independent labo- 
ratories to participate in the program provide data on 
the characteristics of such providers of services. The 
claim number assigned to each individual serves as 
the link between the program services utilized and the 
demographic characteristics of each individual re- 
corded in the health insurance entitlement master file. 

The data-collection system has two inherent charac- 
teristics that determine the scope, detail, and flexibil- 
ity of the available data. First, data are collected and 
maintained on an individual basis so that the benefici- 
ary and his medical experience under the program 
form the basic unit. Second, records for each bill paid 
under the program and, for a sample of beneficiaries, 
records of diagnoses and surgical procedures are 
maintained on a centralized basis. Except for inter- 
mediary operating statistics such as those relating to 
workloads, costs, and the like, all program statistics 
are centrally prepared. 

THE BASIC RECORDS 

The statistical system is based on five related com- 
puter-tape records : the health insurance entitlement 
master file, provider record, hospital insurance (Part 
A) utilization record, medical insurance (Part B) 
payment record, and the record containing informa- 
tion from medical insurance bills for a 5-percent sam- 
ple of supplementary medical insurance enrollees. 

THE HEALTH INSURANCE ENTITLEMENT MASTER FILE 

The health insurance entitlement master file identi- 
fies each aged person eligible for health insurance 
benefits and indicates whether he is entitled to hospi- 
tal benefits, to supplementary medical insurance bene- 
fits, or to both of these benefits. 



This record is used to create a health insurance 
card that is sent to each insured person. The card 
contains the individual's claim number (the number 
used for OASDI or railroad retirement programs). It 
indicates the entitlement of the individual for the two 
parts of the Medicare program. 

The entitlement record provides the population 
data for each part of the program and therefore 
serves as the base for the computation of a variety of 
utilization rates, limited only by its demographic con- 
tent. 



PROVIDER RECORD 

Every hospital, home health agency, extended care 
facility, and independent laboratory must apply for 
participation in the hospital insurance program in 
order to be reimbursed for services provided. Data 
included on the application forms have been recorded 
in the central provider record and are updated as 
facilities are recertified periodically, as new ones 
apply for participation, or as some leave the program. 
When the information in this provider file is com- 
bined with utilization data, it serves to relate the 
characteristics of facilities and agencies that provide 
care to the kinds and amounts of service used by 
persons insured under Medicare. 

UTILIZATION RECORD FOR HOSPITAL INSURANCE 

The administration of the hospital insurance pro- 
gram requires that two items of information be 
known about each person at the time of his admission 
to a hospital — his entitlement under the program and 
the extent to which he has used the benefits available 
to him under the "benefit period" concept. 

When the patient is admitted to a hospital, the ad- 
mission section of the inpatient hospital admission 
and billing form is completed by the hospital and 
forwarded through its intermediary to the Social Se- 
curity Administration for recording in the central 
record. As soon as the record is checked, normally in 
less than 24 hours, the intermediary is informed of 
the patient's benefit status and of the number of days 
remaining during the "benefit period." 

This information is then forwarded to the hospital. 
At discharge, the hospital completes the billing sec- 
tion of the form and sends it to the intermediary for 
payment. When approval for payment has been made, 
the intermediary forwards the claim to the Social Se- 



VI 



of the Medicare Program 



curity Administration for inclusion in the central rec- 
ord. 

As part of this process, information on diagnoses 
and surgical procedures are coded for a 20-percent 
sample of beneficiaries based on specific combinations 
of digits in the health insurance claim number. Copies 
of admission and billing forms are handled in a com- 
parable manner by home health agencies and ex- 
tended care facilities. The outpatient billing form is 
also transmitted to the Social Security Administra- 
tion for recording in the central record after the bill 
is approved for payment by the intermediary. 

All the information on utilization experience in 
hospital and extended care facilities that is needed to 
administer the "benefit period" provision is recorded 
in the central record. This information includes stays 
in certain nonparticipating institutions that meet the 
definition of a hospital or extended care facility under 
the law, and days of care not covered or reimbursable 
under the program. 

Each admission and billing form contains both the 
beneficiary's claim number and the provider's identi- 
fication number. The resulting tape record can be 
readily matched to the beneficiary files and the provi- 
der files. By this process, a statistical tape record is 
created for the sample of insured persons that con- 
tains all the available information needed for tabula- 
tion from the three files related to Part A utilization. 

PAYMENT FOR MEDICAL INSURANCE 

Payment or reimbursement under the SMI pro- 
gram is made only after receipt by the carriers (in- 
termediaries involved in Part B of the Medicare pro- 
gram) of bills having allowed charges exceeding $50 
during a calendar year period. 

For the insured population, carriers need to know 
from a central source that the deductible has been 
met ; thereafter, during the remainder of the calendar 
year, the only additional information required from 
the Social Security Administration for reimburse- 
ment or payment purposes is whether the person is 
still enrolled under the SMI program. 

For administration and operation of the program, 
the Social Security Administration must have accu- 
rate and complete information on the amounts paid 
by the carriers for physician services and for other 
services and supplies under this part of the program. 
To meet these needs, carriers furnish a payment rec- 
ord consisting of tape, punched card, or other ma- 
chine-readable record of each bill paid. A "bill" is 
defined as a request for payment from or on behalf of 
a beneficiary as the result of services provided by a 



single physician or supplier. 

The payment record also contains selected items of 
information needed to supply an efficient basis for 
drawing samples of the bills. These items provide a 
sampling frame that may be used to draw additional 
samples designed to obtain specific information not 
furnished reliably by the basic sample of enrolled per- 
sons under the medical insurance program. 

THE MEDICAL INSURANCE SAMPLE 

Although the payment record provides a rapid 
method for summarizing payment data and a sam- 
pling frame for efficiently drawing additional samples 
of bills, it does not provide specific data on diagnoses, 
procedures, and related charges. 

Basic statistics on the utilization of physician and 
other services covered under the supplementary medi- 
cal insurance program are derived from bills paid by 
intermediaries to or on behalf of a continuous 5-per- 
cent sample of all enrolled persons. Intermediaries 
have been given specific combinations of digits of the 
health insurance claim number to be used in selecting 
the 5-percent sample, which is a sub-sample of the 
20-percent sample used for hospital insurance pro- 
gram data. 

Bills are submitted either directly on an SSA re- 
quest for payment form, or on the SSA form in com- 
bination with the physician's billing form. Both meth- 
ods are designed to provide information on the date 
and place of each service, the procedure carried out or 
service provided, the condition treated (diagnosis), 
and the physician's or supplier's charge for the spe- 
cific service. 

All of the bills of persons in the 5-percent sample to 
or for whom payment is made under the program, 
including those used to meet the annual $50 deducti- 
ble, are included in the sample and coded. However, 
data are not available through these procedures for 
persons in the sample who do not meet the $50 de- 
ductible. Such data are collected by means of the Cur- 
rent Medicare Survey, with data made available in a 
separate report series.^ 

For hospital-based physicians who have authorized 
the provider to collect the fee for their services, the 
provider billing for patient services by physicians 
form is used. This form is completed for each patient. 
It includes descriptive information on the date and 
place of each service, the diagnoses, procedures, and 
the charges. These bills are received centrally for the 
5-percent sample of persons enrolled for supplemen- 
tary medical insurance.

Summary, 1967 



In 1967, the Medicare program insured 21 million 
persons aged 65 and over against part of the costs of 
their medical care.^ Almost 80 percent of these older 
persons used some medical service during the year; 
but only 7 million (35 percent) used sufficient medical 
service to be eligible for reimbursement and filed a 
claim for the amount due them (table A). The reim- 
bursement for these 7 million people totaled $4 billion. 

For most persons, the individual amount reim- 
bursed was small. A quarter of the persons reim- 
bursed received less than $50 each and close to half 
less than $100 apiece — but only about 3 percent of the 
total reimbursement was paid out for these relatively 
small claims. The more effective impact of the pro- 
gram was for the seriously ill. Over 500,000 persons 
suffered illnesses in 1967 for which reimbursements 
were $2,000 or more each. Forty percent of the pro- 
gram expenditures were made on behalf of this 7.5 
percent of the reimbursed population. 

The Medicare program is designed in two parts: 
the hospital insurance (HI) program insures against 
the cost of hospitalization and some related services, 
and the supplementary medical insurance (SMI) pro- 
gram, for physicians' and related services. Of the 7 
million persons reimbursed under the Medicare pro- 
gram, almost all were reimbursed under SMI while, 
in addition, about half of these were also reimbursed 
under HI. The average reimbursement under SMI was 
about $200; but, for persons who were hospitalized 
as well as using physician services, average reim- 
bursement for all services was $1,100. The 3.3 million 
persons who used services under both parts of the 
program (HI and SMI) accounted for 86 percent of 
the total year's reimbursement. Obviously, high cost 
illnesses generally involve hospitalization. 

A benefit providing for a post-hospital stay in ex- 
tended-care facilities was introduced in 1967. This 
new service was used by 350,000 persons, mostly the 
very elderly, and accounted for 6.5 percent of the total 
program expenditures in that year. Other special 
Medicare benefits such as outpatient services and 
home health services accounted for less than 2 percent 
of all program costs. The largest portion of the total 
expenditures — 63 percent — was spent for inpatient 
hospital services ; and the next largest — 29 percent — 
for physicians' services. 

Individual reimbursement levels depend, of course, 
on use of medical services, which in turn results from 
a person's perceived need, his access to service, and

Statistics, Medicare: Health Insurance for the Aged, 1967,

the patterns of use of available services developed 
during his lifetime. While reimbursement levels must 
certainly be related to the occurrence of morbidity in 
the older population, they reflect the prevalence of 
illness only as it can be measured through the use of 
services. Thus, the observed rapid rise with increasing 
age in the percent of persons who were reimbursed — 
from 32 percent at ages 67 and 68 to 43 at ages 85 and 
over — must certainly result from increased morbidity 
with age. Among the white population, the same fig- 
ures range from 33 to 44 percent ; while for all other 
races, the parallel percents of that population who 
were reimbursed are 23 and 30. Since other data indi- 
cate a generally higher prevalence of morbidity 
among the population of other races, it must be con- 
cluded that in spite of the coverage provided by 
Medicare, medical services are not yet equally avail- 
able to all segments of the population. Even in local- 
ities where services are accessible to all, it may take 
some time before new patterns in the use of services 
are adopted by the persons in need of care. 

For all persons who used sufficient medical services 
to reach reimbursement levels, the average amounts 
reimbursed show relatively small differentials with 
age or with race compared with the larger gaps shown 
in the proportion of persons receiving any reimburse- 
ment at all. Across the country, differentials in both 
percent of persons reimbursed and in amounts reim- 
bursed are striking. Because both frequency of use 
of medical services and charges for these services 
vary, the proportion of persons reimbursed and the 
amount spent per person reimbursed range by State 
from less than 300 to almost 500 persons in every 
1,000 enrolled; and from less than $400 to over $700 
for the average reimbursement. 

Data for 1967 compared with the figures for the 
first 6 months of the program, July-December 1966, 
should show important changes in program under- 
standing and use. But such comparisons have not 
become possible because of the difference in time 
spans, and their effect on the study of illnesses suf- 
fered by older persons. The figures discussed here are 
for individuals who may be hospitalized several times 
in any year and who may cumulate physician bills 
throughout every month of the year. The actual num- 
ber of persons receiving reimbursement in a 6-month 
period will not be related by a factor of two to the 
number of persons receiving reimbursement in a full 
year because many of the same persons remain chron- 
ically ill, increasing the amount of the service utilized 
in the longer time period. These additional services 
are reflected in higher reimbursements but not in

higher percentages of persons receiving reimburse- 
ment. Since any set of figures for a given period of 
time are made up of persons with acute episodes of 
illness and persons with practically continuous med- 
ical care, there is no way of comparing the existing 
figures for the half-year of 1966 and for the full year 
1967. Comparisons over time must wait on data for 
1968 and subsequent years. 

Description of the Data 

The preliminary data in this report summarizing 
the experience under the Medicare program during 
1967 are based on records for a sample of the insured 
population. They show by age, race, and sex, and by 
State of residence the persons for whom covered 
reimbursed services used in 1967 were recorded in 
the social security system by October 1969, as well as 
the amounts paid by the program for these services 
and the type of benefits provided. Comparable data 
have been presented in summary form in the Current 
Medicare Survey series- based on interviews of a 
small sample of the insured population. Other earlier 
reports presented data by date of payment, rather 
than date of service.^ 

The "person" concept. — Records for the Medicare 
program are so designed that bills for medical serv- 
ices can be assembled for each insured individual. 
Records kept on a "person" basis make it possible to 
cumulate total reimbursement to or on behalf of each 
individual. In addition the extent of covered services 
he has used and the nature of these services and their 
charges can be determined. The tables in this report 
reflect, with one exception, the compilation of these 
bills for a 5-percent sample of the enrolled population. 
Bills for home health services for the entire Medicare

population are included in the tables because their 
total number is small. 

The tables are organized by characteristics of the 
insured person — age, race, sex, and place of residence. 
Since the records are brought together for services 
rendered over the entire year, changes in the charac- 
teristics of the insured person during the interval 
must be considered. The characteristics of race and 
sex do not change. Age for all persons alive at the 
end of 1967 was calculated as of July 1 of that year; 
but age for persons who died during the year was the 
age at date of death. Changes in place of residence are 
entered into the record system as this information 
flows in. Bills for services were associated with the 
personal information on record at the time the service 
and personal files were linked. Thus, an individual 
who notified the Social Security Administration that 
he changed his State of residence during the year 
could have had services recorded in more than one 
State. In tables 1.1-1.8, each person and his State of 
residence were tabulated as a unique combination. As 
a result, persons who lived in more than one State 
during the year and received reimbursed services in 
each area are recorded in each of these areas. Since 
beneficiaries who move are counted more than once by 
State, but only once in the United States, the total 
number of persons served in the United States (or in 
all areas, a geographic region, or a division) will be 
less than the sum of the persons served in the individ- 
ual States. 

Persons are also counted individually for each serv- 
ice covered under the program (see, for example, 
table 1.10). Thus, the individual who received both 
in-hospital care and post-hospital home health serv- 
ices is counted in each column, but he is counted only 
once in the total column for all services under the 
hospital insurance program. 

The individual who is counted under in-hospital 
care may have been hospitalized more than once in 
this period. About 3.6 million persons were discharged 
from hospitals (table 1.2) in 1967. UnpubUshed esti- 
mates show that for 1967 there were about 5 million 



discharges from hospitals — or that almost 1.5 million 
of the discharges represented repeated hospitaliza- 
tions. 

Because the experience of all individuals ever en- 
rolled is described in this report, table 1.1 gives counts 
of all persons enrolled in the Medicare program for 
any length of time during 1967. The total number of 
persons ever enrolled v^as obtained by adding to the 
January 1 enrollment those persons whose Medicare 
coverage began in the subsequent months of 1967. 
This procedure was applied by State, and by age, 
race, and sex. The resulting total was estimated to be 
20.7 million.* This "ever enrolled" figure is the base 
for the percents shown in tables A and D. Rates in 
tables 1.3, 1.6, 1.11, and 1.14 are based on the midyear 
enrollment recorded for July 1, 1967. 

Data included in this report. — With the exception 
already noted of home health services, bills received 
in the HI program and payment records received in 
the SMI program for a 5-percent sample of the in- 
sured population and entered into Social Security Ad- 
ministration records by October 1969 are included in 
this report. The sample population was identified by 
selected digits of the health insurance claim number 
and all counts (except for home health services) were 
multiplied by 20 to obtain the estimated total program 
figures shown in the tables. Utilization and reimburse- 
ment for home health services are based on all rec- 
ords received. Data for 1967 to be published in other 
reports in this series will be based on records included 
in the files through later dates, on samples of varying 
size, and on more accurate methods of inflation for 
estimating the total utilization. 

Besides being incomplete to the extent that all bills 
for services in 1967 had not yet been filed by October 
1969, the payments under the HI part of the program 
shown in this report reflect reimbursements based on 
interim rates, usually established as a per diem 
amount or on percentages of total charges. The final 
amount due each provider of medical services is deter- 
mined after the end of his fiscal year on the basis of 
his audited, reasonable costs of operation. Available 
audited cost reports for 1967 indicate additional pay- 
ments were made of about 5 percent over the amounts 
paid on an interim basis. ^ 

Data for the HI program include all short-stay hos- 
pital bills for discharges in 1967, and bills from psy- 
chiatric, tuberculosis, and other long-stay hospitals 
for any services in 1967. If a long-stay hospital bill 
covered care in 1967 and in 1968, the bill was pro- 
rated between the two years according to the number 
of days of care in each year. Bills for outpatient hos- 
pital services were included only when the date of 
last service was in 1967. The same rule was followed

Hospital Costs for Persons Aged 65 and Over as Indicated by

for bills for home health services. The payment record 
used for the SMI program was included if the service 
recorded took place in 1967. 

Only bills on which there is some reimbursement 
are entered into Social Security Administration rec- 
ords. As described under "Provisions of the Law," the 
first $40 of covered charges under the HI program and 
the first $50 of covered charges under the SMI pro- 
gram as well as coinsurance amounts under both pro- 
grams are paid by the insured person. The remaining 
covered charges under the HI program are reim- 
bursed at interim rates as described above. Under the 
SMI program, 80 percent of the remaining charges 
"allowed" by the insurance carrier are paid. These 
amounts are reflected as reimbursements in the tables 
in this report. 

Comparison with Current Medicare Survey. — The 
estimated 6.5 million persons reimbursed for SMI 
services received in 1967 is far less than the number 
of insured persons aged 65 and over who reported 
during household interviews that they used some 
services covered under this part of the program. The 
SSA record system provides information only for per- 
sons whose charges exceeded the $50 deductible and 
who filed a claim for payment. In order to obtain esti- 
mates of all services used, SSA conducts a continuing 
monthly Current Medicare Survey (CMS).'' Data 
from the CMS interviews of a sample of the insured 
population showed that an estimated 15 million per- 
sons stated they had used some covered SMI services 
in 1967, and of that number, 8.6 million had used suf- 
ficient services to have met the $50 deductible. How- 
ever, estimates based on recorded data from bills in 
the Social Security Administration system showed 
that only 6.5 million persons received any reimburse- 
ment (table A). Apparently, a considerable number 
of persons who seemed to be eligible for reimburse- 
ment did not receive any payments from the program. 

To determine how this difference arose, the SSA 
records were searched for all persons in the CMS 
sample who reported use of SMI services in 1967. 
Results showed that part of the difference was ac- 
counted for by 200,000 persons who had reached but 
had not exceeded the $50 deductible and about 1.3 
million persons who were eligible for reimbursement 
but who did not file a claim. Of these, 300,000 persons 
were eligible for reimbursement through use of the 
carryover provisions of the law which permits 
charges accrued toward the deductible in the last 3 
months of the year to be credited toward the deduc- 
tible in the next year. It seems likely that they did not 
understand this provision. The balance of the differ- 
ence may have resulted from an overestimate in the 
CMS of persons exceeding the deductible or an under- 
estimate in the present report, which is based on a 
5-percent sample of the population. 

The amounts entered into CMS computations are 
"total" rather than "allowed" charges. This fact alone 
tends to overestimate persons meeting the deductible. 



See footnote 2. 



XI 



In addition, where charges for services were unknown 
or responses were incomplete, average values were 
imputed. These imputed average values may have 
been in excess of the actual bills. Thus, more persons 
may have been reported as reaching the deductible in 
CMS data than was actually the case. 

Type of benefits reimbursed. — In 1967, the health 
insurance program provided seven types of benefits, 
as shown in table A, four benefits under HI, and three 
under SMI. Over 60 percent of the amounts paid out 
were for inpatient hospital services and almost 30 
percent for physicians' and other medical services. 
The remaining amounts were divided among pay- 
ments for services in extended-care facilities, a bene- 
fit added beginning in 1967, and outpatient and home 
health services. 

Few persons used all seven possible types of bene- 
fits, and less than 1 percent used five or six types. The 
combinations of specific benefits used by persons for 
whom four or fewer types of benefits were recorded 
are shown in table B. Forty percent of all persons re- 
imbursed used only physicians' and other medical serv- 
ices; and 30 percent used both physicians' services 
and inpatient hospital services but no other service. 
These two groups accounted for the bulk of the per-

sons to whom reimbursed services were provided. In- 
patient hospital services was the only benefit provided 
to 7 percent of the total persons reimbursed. These 
persons may represent hospital admissions without 
use of a private physician; or admissions for which 
the allowed physician charges did not exceed the SMI 
deductible, or for which no claim was filed. There 
are also a number of persons with Medicare coverage 
for hospital insurance only. About 1.6 million persons 
in the HI program and eligible for SMI chose not to 
enroll in the latter program.^ 

Table C examines each of the seven benefits sep- 
arately to determine what proportion of all persons 
reimbursed for a particular benefit also received other 
benefits. For example, of all persons hospitalized in 
1967, 60 percent also used physicians' and other med- 
ical services (but no other reimbursed service) ; 10 
percent used both outpatient and physicians' benefits. 
An additional 6 percent of users of inpatient hospital 
services used both physician and ECF benefits. When 
total ECF users are the base, the same group who 
used the three benefits (PHYS, INP, ECF) represents 
close to 60 percent of the persons reimbursed for ECF 
services. Most persons who were reimbursed for home 
health services or for outpatient services also fall into 
the groups of three or four benefit users. 



Characteristics of Persons 
Using Reimbursed Services 

Age, race, and sex. — During 1967, over one-third of 
all persons ever enrolled in Medicare used sufficient 
covered services to exceed the deductible and filed 
claims for reimbursement. The proportion of the en- 
rolled population using reimbursed services rose with 
advancing age; this was also true, with few excep- 
tions, within each race and sex group (table D). The 
percentage of the 65-66 year age group using services 
is lower than might be expected in comparison with 
the 67-68 year age group. A reason for this could be 
that persons aged 65 had less opportunity to use cov- 
ered services than the next older age group. Coverage 
for a person attaining age 65 can begin in the month 
he reaches this age. About 120,000 persons became 
65 in each month of 1967, but, for example, persons 
newly enrolled in February had 11 months in which 
to use services; in March, 10 months; etc. On the 



average, these new entrants during 1967 had 6 months 
rather than 12 in which to use services. Since all per- 
sons enrolled for any part of 1967 are counted in the 
total number ever enrolled (table 1.9), the percentage 
of persons aged 65 utilizing reimbursed services is 
understated in comparison with age groups that were 
likely to have been in the program for the full year. 

This appears to be so for all race and sex groups 
shown in table D. At other ages, the percentage of 
persons ever enrolled who used reimbursed services 
was higher for women than for men, higher for white 
persons than for persons of other races, and increased 
rapidly with advancing age.** The differences between 
the sexes are observed consistently by age for both 
race groups through age 79. At ages 80 to 84 and 85 
and over the percentages are not always higher for 
women. The gap in percentage of persons reimbursed 
between the two race groups remained at roughly 10 
percentage points at every age and for both sexes. 

Type of service. — Age, race, and sex influence both 
the total utilization of reimbursed services (persons 
using reimbursed services per 1,000 enrolled) and the 
types of services used. Under the HI program, stays 
in hospitals or extended-care facilities, outpatient 
diagnostic services, and home health services for pre- 
viously hospitalized patients were covered. Under the 
SMI program, physicians' services, outpatient thera- 
peutic services, and home health services can be re- 
imbursed. Table 1.11 shows that HI utilization rates 
increased with age, were higher for men than for 
women, and were higher for white enrollees than for 
the enrollees of other races. For SMI, utilization rates 
for women were higher through age 79, and then 
slightly lower at older ages; by race, the excess in 
rates for the white population over that of other races 
was somewhat greater than for HI. 

Contrasts in utilization of selected benefits under 
HI and SMI between the white population and that 
of other races are shown in table E. For all ages 65 
years and over, the rate for inpatient hospital utiliza- 
tion among white enrollees was 1.4 times that for 
other races, while for physicians' services it was 1.5 
times as great (figure 1). The disparity was observed 
by sex as well as by age.

Outpatient services. — The use of outpatient clinics 
under both HI and SMI was more frequent among 
persons of other races than among the white popula- 
tion (figure 2). This was true in almost every age and 
sex group. Among women, rates declined at the old- 
est ages. The same decline was evident for white men 
but not for men of other races. 

Home health services. — Rates of utilization of home 
health services are so small that comparisons among 
the population groups are difficult to make (table 
1.11). In general, the disparity between rates by sex 
seemed to be larger than by race. Women of both 
race groups showed a higher rate of use of home 
health services than men, and rates for the white pop- 
ulation were slightly higher than for other races. In 
all groups, there was a rise in the use of SMI home 
health services at age 80 years and older. Home health 
services under HI must be preceded by a stay in hos- 
pital or an extended-care facility (see "Benefits of 
the Program"). The proportion of persons hospital- 
ized in 1967 who also received home health care under 
HI was:

Use of extended-care facilities. — The Medicare pro- 
gram introduced a new HI benefit in 1967 covering 
inpatient services in participating extended-care 
facilities (ECF's). Persons discharged from a hos- 
pital after a stay of 3 days or more could be admitted 
within 14 days of discharge to an ECF for further 
convalescent care (see "Benefits of the Program"). 
In terms of the experience of individual persons as 
shown in this report (table 1.10) 9.8 percent of per- 
sons hospitalized during the year also made use of 
ECF services. This figure was higher for women than 
for men — 11.6 compared with 7.7 ; and higher for the 



white population — 9.9 percent — than for persons of 
other races — 4.8. 

The benefit was utilized to a greater extent by older 
persons. The ratio of persons using ECF services to 
those using inpatient hospital services by age was:

73 and 74 7.4 

75-79 10.9 

80-84 16.8 

85 and over 22.2 



Most of the sharp rise in utilization with age was ob- 
served in the white population. 

Some persons hospitalized died in hospital and 
would not therefore be a potential ECF admission. 
Unpublished data for short-stay hospital discharges 
show that an average of about 10 percent of the dis- 
charges in 1967 were dead on discharge. This figure 
was close to 6 percent at ages 65 and 66 and rose with 
advancing age to 17 percent at ages 85 and over. Data 
are not yet available to show whether or not the per- 
sons who died during a stay in hospital had possibly 
had an opportunity to use ECF services in connection 
with an earlier hospital stay during the year. If they 
did not, the ratio of persons using ECF services to 
persons using hospital services should be compared 
for living persons only. Such a comparison would in- 
crease the differences observed by age. 

Geographic distribution. — The percentage of per- 
sons enrolled at any time during the year who used 
covered services (HI and/or SMI), and filed a claim 
for reimbursement, showed considerable variation by 
geographic division:

These figures reflect in part the age, race, and sex 
distribution of the enrolled population across the 
country. 

Rates of utilization for HI and for SMI are shown 
separately by State in figures 3 and 4, and by type of 
service in table 1.3. These rates, like those for the 
United States, are averages for the population in the 
area, and if examined in more detail by age, race, and 
sex would most likely show variations of the same 
order, if not of the same magnitude as those shown 
in table 1.11. 

To summarize the comparative utilization of reim- 
bursed services by geographic division, the ratio of 
the rate for each division to the rate for the United 
States is shown in table F. Ratios for HI utilization 
range from 0.91 for the Middle Atlantic States to 1.16 
for the Mountain States; but for SMI, the low ratio 
is 0.87 for the East South Central States and the high 
1.27 for the Pacific States. As has been noted earlier, 
the SMI figures are subject more than the HI rates 
to the effect of charge levels on the numbers of per- 
sons who meet the deductible. 

Greater variability among the geographic divisions 
is shown by type of service than for the HI or SMI 
programs as a whole (table F). For HI services, dif- 
ferences in utilization rates are at a minimum for 
inpatient hospital services. Larger disparities among 
areas exist for outpatient, extended care, and home 
health services. For the latter three types of services, 
the lower rates are observed in the East and West 
South Central States. In the SMI program, the utiliza- 
tion of physicians' services varies from 87 percent of 
the rate for the United States in the East South Cen- 
tral States to 128 percent of the U.S. rate in the 
Pacific. The pattern of use of outpatient services 
under SMI is similar to that found under HI; while 
use of home health services under SMI varies even 
more than under HI. Again, low rates are found in 
the East and West South Central States. The level of 
use in each division is determined to a considerable 
extent by the availability of services in the area.'' 



" See Social Security Administration, Office of Research and 
Statistics, Medicare: Health Insurance for the Aged, 1967, Sec- 
tion 3: Participating Providers (Washington, D.C.; U.S. Gov- 
ernment Printing Office, 1971). 



Reimbursement Per Person Served 

The average reimbursement for persons who filed 
claims for covered Medicare services received in 1967 
was $592 (table A) . This figure represents an individ- 
ual's experience for the entire year. It may include 
more than one hospitalization, the services of several 
physicians, as well as other benefits provided under 
Medicare. 

Age, race, and sex. — The average amount reim- 
bursed for HI and/or SMI increased irregularly with 
advancing age (table 1.13). This amount did not in- 
crease to so great an extent as did the utilization rates 
shown in table 1.11. The level of reimbursement for 
all persons 65 and over was 17 percent higher for 
men than for women and 6 percent higher for white 
enrollees than for persons of other races. 

When the benefits of the Medicare program are ex- 
amined separately, the average reimbursement for 
inpatient hospital services is found to be higher for 
men than for women and almost the same for the 
white enrollees as for those of other races (table 
1.13). By age, reimbursements for these services are 
higher for men and women of other races than for 
the white population below 75 years and lower at the 
older ages (figure 5 and table G). Amounts paid out 
for physicians' services (figure 6) by age are con- 
sistently higher for men than for women and for the 
white population compared with that of other races. 
The amounts do not, however, change with age as 
sharply as does the rate of utilization of such services. 

Outpatient services account for less than one per- 
cent of all program reimbursements. Amounts paid 
for persons of other races for these services is greater 
than for white persons under both HI and SMI. In 
both programs, age and sex had little effect on the 
amounts reimbursed. 

Slightly more of the program's funds were spent 
for home health services under HI than under SMI; 
but in both programs age had little effect on the 
amounts reimbursed, nor was the variation with race 
or sex substantial. 

For services in ECF's, average reimbursement 
amounts increased with age, particularly for women. 
Payments were higher for white women than for

women of other races, but lower for white men than 
for their counterparts. Use of ECF's was too infre- 
quent among other races to permit comparisons by 
race and age. 

Geogr-aphic distribution. — The illness rates, the 
nature of the illness, the area's population composi- 
tion, the level of charges for medical care and the 
types of services available — all contribute to the level 
of the average reimbursement in each geographic 
area (table 1.5). When the figures in table 1.5 are 
compared by division with those for the United States 
(table H), greater variation in per capita reimburse- 
ments are found for the HI program as a whole than 
for SMI (figures 7 and 8). Under the HI program, 
reimbursement per person served averaged about 25 
percent greater in the Pacific States than for the 
United States as a whole ; it was about 72 percent of 
the U.S. figure in the East South Central States. High 
and low ratios for SMI were found in the same areas 
— 1.15 and 0.86 respectively — but the range was 
smaller than for HI. There does not, however, seem 
to be a generally consistent geographic pattern of 
high or low per capita reimbursements throughout the 
various parts of the program. 

Distribution of Amounts Reimbursed 

Age, race, and sex. — Twenty-five percent of all per- 
sons reimbursed under the Medicare program in 1967 
received less than $50 (table J). Payments to or on 



behalf of these persons accounted for 1.6 percent of 
the program expenditures. At the other extreme of 
the distribution, the 7.5 percent of persons using 
reimbursed services whose reimbursements were each 
$2,000 or more accounted for almost 40 percent of the 
total amounts paid out. The reimbursement distribu- 
tions are shown separately for HI and SMI in table 
1.16. More than half the persons reimbursed under 
SMI received less than $100 ; and only 2 percent were 
found in the $1,000 or more groups. For HI, in con- 
trast, reimbursements of under $100 accounted for 
16 percent of the persons served. An additional 16 
percent were each reimbursed between $1,000 and 
$2,000, while 9 percent fell into the $2,000 or more 
class. 

The proportions of persons served are shown by 
reimbursement class and age, race, and sex in table 
1.16. For the program as a whole, relatively more per- 
sons at older ages fell into the higher reimbursement 
classes. At age 65 and 66, 5.5 percent received $2,000 
or more; at ages 67 to 70, 6.1 percent; and at ages 
85 and over, 10.6 percent. A similar pattern prevails 
for white men and women. Among persons of other 
races, the percentage found in the $2,000 or more 
reimbursement class is a little lower than for the 
white population. There is no consistent rise with 
advancing age. 

Geographic distribution. — The geographic divisions 
where the average reimbursements are high are those 
areas in which a large proportion of all payments are

accounted for by persons with high-cost illnesses 
(table K). In the Pacific States, 46 percent of the 
total reimbursement was made for the 9 percent of 
persons served whose average reimbursement was 
$2,000 or more. Less than 5 percent of persons served 
fell into this category in the East South Central States 
to account for 27 percent of the expenditures in that 
area. 

Persons who used no reimbursed services. — Figures 
in this report account only for those persons whose 



incurred charges for covered services were greater 
than the deductible amounts for HI and SMI, and 
who filed claims for reimbursement. Tables 1.1 and 
1.9 give the geographic and age, race, and sex distri- 
butions of the estimated 14 million persons who did 
not receive any reimbursement in 1967. These esti- 
mates were derived by subtracting the numbers of 
persons who used reimbursed services from the total 
persons enrolled for any time during the year.

services consists of: persons who used services that 
were not covered under Medicare ; those who used no 
covered services ; those who used services but did not 
exceed the HI $40 deductible or the SMI $50 deducti- 
ble; and those who failed to submit claims even 
though they used services for which the charges were 
in excess of either deductible. 

From the Current Medicare Survey,i° j^ jg gg^j. 
mated that about 21 percent of the persons enrolled 
for SMI did not use covered services in 1967 and 33 
percent used medical services but did not meet the 
deductible limit. In addition, as discussed earlier, 
about one million SMI enrollees were estimated to 
have met the deductible but failed to submit claims. 

The 14 million persons who received no reimburse- 
ment in 1967 constituted 66 percent of persons en- 
rolled for HI and/or SMI at any time during 1967. 
Complements of the percentages given in table D 
provide the percentages of the 1967 population by 
age, race, and sex, and by geographic division who 
received no reimbursement for services in that year. 



Reliability of Estimates 

The standard error is primarily a measure of 
sampling variability — that is, of the variations that 
occure by chance because a sample rather than the 
whole universe was used. As roughly approximated 
for this report, the standard errors shown do not re- 
flect the efi'ect of systematic biases (if any) in the 
data. The chances are about 68 out of 100 that an 
estimate from the sample would differ from the result 
for the entire universe, with the same procedures and 
methods used, by less than the standard error. The 
chances are about 95 out of 100 that the difference 
would be less than twice the standard error, and 
about 99 out of 100 that the difference would be less 
than two and one-half times the standard error. 

Table L contains rough approximations to standard 
errors for estimates of the number of persons using

specified services and should be used with such data 
shown in tables 1.1, 1.2, 1.7, 1.9, 1.10, and 1.15. To 
estimate approximate standard errors of numbers not 
presented directly in the tables, linear interpolation 
provides a satisfactory basis for estimation. 

As an illustration, table 1.1 shows 14,040 persons 
using both HI and SMI services in South Dakota. 
Using linear interpolation in table L for the estimated 
number of persons gives .65 as the estimated standard 
error (in 1,000's) in this estimate. Thus, the chances 
are 68 out of 100 the true number lies in the range 
between 13,390 and 14,690. 

Table L also may be utilized to obtain rough ap- 
proximations to the standard errors of estimates of 
persons not using services. This result is secured as 
follows : First, the estimated number using no covered 
services is subtracted from the total enrolled persons. 
Then, second, table L is entered with the number 
using services. The associated standard error for this 
number then applies to the number not using services. 

For example, again in the case of South Dakota, the 
number using no services is shown in table 1.1 to be 
55,634. This is subtracted from the total shown in 
column 1 of 84,194 to give as the number using serv- 
ices, 28,560. Entering and interpolating in table L 
for 28,560 gives a standard error of 930. Therefore, 
the chances are 95 out of 100 that the true value of 
those not using services lies in the range between 
53,774 and 57,494.

Table M, approximate standard error of estimated 
number of persons served per 1,000 enrolled, is for 
use in connection with data in tables 1.3 and 1.11. A 
process of double linear interpolation may need to be 
used with table M, since the joint data on both the 
number of persons enrolled (in 1,000's) as well as the 
estimated number of persons receiving services per 
1,000 enrolled may both require interpolation. 

As an illustration, in table 1.3, in Maine 220.1 per- 
sons per 1,000 utilized some form of reimbursed HI. 
Enrollment for Maine on July 1, 1967 was 117,467.^^ 
Interpolating first to determine the standard error on 
220.1 for a base of 100,000 enrolled persons gives 8.3. 
Similarly, interpolating for a base of 250,000 gives 
5.2 as the standard error. The second part of the 
double linear interpolation is completed by interpo- 
lating between those derived values for the enroll- 
ment base of 117,467. This gives the final estimated 
error of 7.9 persons per 1,000 enrolled. Thus, the 
chances are 68 out of 100 that the true result lies in 
the range of 212.2 and 228.0. 

Table N provides rough approximations of stand- 
ard errors of percents of persons served for use in 
connection with tables 1.8 and 1.16. Again, double 
linear interpolation will be needed for values not 
directly shown in the table. 



"■ See footnote 1. 



Table shows rough approximations to relative 
standard errors for total amounts reimbursed and 
for average reimbursement per person served. A 
relative standard error (expressed in percent) is the 
standard error of an estimate divided by the estimate 
multiplied by 100. The relative errors are used as 
multipliers of estimated values of amounts reim- 
bursed or average reimbursement per person served 
shown in tables 1.1, 1.4, 1.5, 1.9, 1.12, 1.13 to derive 
the associated approximate standard errors. Then, 
these calculated approximate standard errors are in- 
terpreted and used in the same way as those shown 
in tables L, N, or 0. 

Consider an illustration with data from table 1.1. 
Average reimbursement per person served for per- 
sons in Kansas using only HI services was $455.03 
and the number of persons using the services was 
15,840. Interpolation in table is required, and use 
is made of the rough relative errors in the column for 
average reimbursement per person served, HI. The 
relative error of the average reimbursement per per- 
son served is between 5.4 percent corresponding to 
10,000 persons served and 3.4 percent corresponding 
to 25,000 persons served. The interpolated value de- 
rived gives a relative error of 4.6 percent. Multiplying 
4.6 percent by the $455.03 gives an approximate

standard error of $20.93. Therefore, the chances are 
68 out of 100 that the true value lies in the range be- 
tween $434.10 and $475.96. 

Another illustration comes from table 1.4. Total re- 
imbursement for SMI for Pennsylvania was $72,- 
964,000 and the number of persons served is shown in 
table 1.2 as 402,040. Interpolation in table gives a 
relative error of 1.4 percent. The standard error of 
the estimate of the total reimbursed amount corre- 
sponding to this relative error is found by multiplying 
the estimated reimbursement by the relative error — 
that is, $72,964,000 multiplied by 1.4 percent is about 
$1,021,000. The chances are 68 out of 100, therefore, 
that the true reimbursement lies in the range of $71,- 
943,000 and $73,985,000. 

In tables 1.6 and 1.14 there are shown data on 
average reimbursement per person enrolled. To de- 
termine a rough approximation of the relative error 
for such data, a series of steps, using the relative er- 
rors shown in table 0, are carried out. First, the user 
needs to associate on a worksheet, the total amount 
reimbursed (from tables 1.4 or 1.12) with the number 
of persons served (from tables 1.2 or 1.10) and the 



specific average reimbursement per person enrolled 
(from tables 1.6 or 1.14) which is of interest. Then, 
the relative error of the total amount reimbursed is 
determined from table O, as discussed above. This 
relative error is then used as the relative error of the 
associated estimate of average reimbursement per 
person enrolled. The standard error is obtained by 
multiplying the relative error by the associated aver- 
age reimbursement per person enrolled. 

For example, in table 1.6, $53.78 is shown as the 
average reimbursement for physicians and other med- 
ical services per person enrolled in Ohio. Table 1.4 
shows that this average is derived from the $48,- 
356,000 estimate of total reimbursement. There were 
292,940 (in table 1.2) persons served in Ohio for this 
benefit. Now, linear interpolation in table shows 
that the relative error in the amount reimbursed 
under SMI for an estimated 292,940 persons served 
is 1.6 percent and $53.78 gives a standard error of 
$0.86. Thus, the chances are 68 out of 100 that the 
true value of the average reimbursement per person 
enrolled lies in the range of $52.92 and $54,64.

Provisions of the Low 



The health insurance program for the aged, com- 
monly called Medicare, was enacted on July 30, 1965, 
as Title XVIII of the Social Security Act, and 
became effective on July 1, 1966. The program, a part 
of the 1965 amendments (Public Law 89-97), makes 
available two separate but coordinated insurance cov- 
erages — hospital insurance, covering nearly all per- 
sons aged 65 and over, and supplementary medical 
insurance, covering those persons in this age group 
who enroll voluntarily and pay the premium. Changes 
in the program effective in 1968 were incorporated in 
the 1967 amendments to the Social Security Act 
(Public Law 90-248). 

Hospital Insurance Program 

The hospital insurance program (Part A of Medi- 
care) pays for a large portion of the costs of hospital 
and related post-hospital services. It is financed on a 
self supporting basis through a tax on a portion of 
current earnings, paid by employees, employers, and 
self-employed persons. The proceeds of this tax are 
placed in the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, from 
which reimbursements for benefits and administra- 
tive expenses incurred under the program are paid. 
The trust fund is reimbursed from general tax reve- 
nues for the costs of providing coverage for persons 
who qualify for hospital insurance but who are not 
eligible for monthly social security or railroad retire- 
ment benefits. 

BENEFITS 

Inpatient hospital benefits. — The program covers 
the cost of covered services in a participating hospital 
for up to 90 days in a "benefit period" (a period 
beginning with the first day of hospitalization and 
ending 60 days after discharge from a hospital or 
a skilled nursing home) . Of the 90 days, full payment 
is made for the first 60 days of hospitalization after a 
deductible of $40 has been paid. For each of the re- 
maining 30 days in the benefit period, the patient 
pays a coinsurance amount of $10 a day. The pro- 
gram provides the same benefits for emergency serv- 
ices rendered in a nonparticipating hospital. 

Inpatient tuberculosis and psychiatric hospital 
services are also covered. However, there is a lifetime 
limit of 190 days of care in a psychiatric hospital. 



Where an individual is a patient in a tuberculosis or 
psychiatric hospital at the time he becomes entitled to 
hospital insurance, the number of days he was such 
an inpatient in the 90-day period immediately prior to 
his eligibility are counted against his 90 days of enti- 
tlement in that benefit period. 

Covered hospital services include hospital room and 
board in accommodations containing from two to four 
beds, nursing services except for private-duty nurs- 
ing, drugs and biologicals, and all those services ordi- 
narily furnished by a hospital to its inpatients. Cover- 
age under the hospital insurance program does not 
include the services of physicians (including radiolo- 
gists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, and physiat- 
rists) except for those services provided by interns or 
residents in training under approved teaching pro- 
grams in a hospital. 

The cost of the first three pints of blood furnished a 
patient during a benefit period is a deductible amount 
unless the patient arranges for replacement. Charges 
for any additional blood are covered under the pro- 
gram. 

Outpatient hospital diagnostic benefits. — These 
benefits cover the cost of tests and related services 
that are ordinarily furnished by a participating hos- 
pital to its outpatients for the purpose of diagnostic 
study. Such services are covered subject to a $20 de- 
ductible and 20-percent coinsurance for diagnostic 
services furnished the beneficiary by the same hospi- 
tal during a 20-day period. The deductible may be 
applied towards the $50 annual medical insurance de- 
ductible. 

Post-hospital home health care benefits. — These 
benefits cover the cost of visiting nurse services and 
related home health services for as many as 100 visits 
in a year following the patient's discharge from a 
hospital or extended care facility, provided he has 
been confined for at least 3 consecutive days in a 
hospital. A home health plan must be developed by a 
physician and implemented within 14 days after the 
patient's discharge from the hospital or extended care 
facility. 

Extended care facility benefits. — The program pays 
for the reasonable cost of all covered inpatient serv- 
ices in participating extended care facilities (ECF) 
for up to 100 days of such care in any benefit period, 
following discharge from a hospital after a stay of 3 
consecutive days or more, and admission to an ECF 
within 14 days of discharge. Full payment is made for 



XXV 



450-006 O - 71 - 4 



the first 20 days. For each of the remaining 80 days, 
the patient pays a coinsurance of $5 a day. 



Supplementary Medical Insurance Program 

The supplementary medical insurance program 
(Part B of Medicare) provides coverage of physi- 
cians' services, additional home health services, and a 
variety of other health services. Individuals 65 years 
of age and over may enroll in the program regardless 
of whether they are eligible for social security retire- 
ment benefits. The insured's monthly premiums are 
matched by the Federal Government and paid into the 
Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund, which 
reimburses carriers for benefits and administrative 
expenses incurred under the program. 

BENEFITS 

The SMI program pays for 80 percent of the al- 
lowed charges for covered physician services and 
other medical services after the patient has met a 
deductible of $50 during a calendar year. However, 
payment for outpatient psychiatric physician services 
is limited to the lesser of $250 or 50 percent of the 
allowed charges in any year after the $50 deductible 
has been met. The sum and percentage are derived 
from the statutory provision which permits an in- 
curred expense for out-of-hospital treatment of men- 
tal illness of only $312.50 or 62.5 percent of actual 
expenses in a calendar year. Since only 80 percent of 
allowed charges can be reimbursed, the effective max- 
imum becomes $250. 

To preclude the possibility of having to meet a de- 
ductible twice in a short period of time, a "carry- 
over" provision is applied. Accordingly, covered ex- 
penses that are incurred in the last quarter of the 
year and counted toward the deductible in that year 
are also credited toward the deductible for the follow- 
ing year. 

Covered under the program are such benefits as 
physicians' services, including home, hospital, and 
oflfice visits; services and supplies, including drugs 
and biologicals that cannot be self-administered, that 
are furnished as a part of a physician's professional 
service, most commonly in his office, and either ren- 
dered without charge or included in the physician's 
bills; diagnostic X-ray tests, diagnostic laboratory 
tests, and other diagnostic tests; X-ray, radium, and 
radioactive isotope therapy, including materials and 
the services of technicians; surgical dressings, 
splints, casts, and other devices used for reduction of 
fractures and dislocations; rental of durable medical 
equipment, including iron lungs, oxygen tents, hospi- 
tal beds, and wheelchairs used in the patient's home 
(including an institution used as his home) ; ambul- 
ance service in cases where the use of other methods 
of transportation is contraindicated by the individu- 
al's condition; prosthetic devices (other than dental) 
that replace all or part of an internal organ, including 



replacement of such devices ; leg, arm, back, and neck 
braces, and artificial legs, arms, eyes, including re- 
placement if required because of a change in the pa- 
tient's physical condition ; and 100 home health visits 
during a calendar year — these visits being indepen- 
dent of those provided under the hospital insurance 
program. 

Eligibility 

The hospital insurance program. — Almost all per- 
sons aged 65 and over are eligible for benefits under 
the hospital insurance program. Included are those 
persons in this age group who are entitled to monthly 
social security cash benefits or payments from the rail- 
road retirement system, regardless of whether they 
have applied for these cash benefits. A person could 
apply for hospital insurance protection even though 
he did not qualify for either social security cash bene- 
fits or a railroad retirement annuity if (1) he had 
attained age 65 by July 1, 1966, (2) he would become 
65 years of age before 1968, or (3) he would attain 
age 65 after 1967 with not less than 3 quarters of 
social security coverage, whenever acquired, for each 
calendar year elapsing after 1965 and before the year 
in which he would attain age 65; however, hospital 
insurance protection could not go into effect until the 
individual attained age 65. These three classes of indi- 
viduals were "deemed insured" under a special transi- 
tional provision. 

Federal employees who retired from the Federal 
service after July 1, 1960, and who had the opportu- 
nity to be covered under the Federal Employees 
Health Benefits Act of 1959, are ineligible for hospital 
insurance benefits under the transitional provisions. 
Also ineligible are aliens with less than 5 years of 
continuous residence in the United States, and those 
persons convicted of crimes against the security of 
the United States. 

Hospital insurance protection can be retoractive for 
as many as 12 months before the month an individual 
files his application for entitlement. For example, an 
individual may apply 11 months after he attains age 
65 and still be entitled to benefits from the month he 
attained age 65. 

Supplementary medical insurance. — Persons enti- 
tled to benefits under the hospital insurance program 
(Part A), retired Federal employees aged 65 or over, 
and persons not eligible for hospital insurance under 
the transitional provisions may voluntarily partici- 
pate in the SMI program. 

Enrollment. — An eligible person may enroll during 
the initial enrollment period, which begins with the 
third month preceding the one in which an individual 
attains age 65 and ends 3 months after the month of 
attainment, a total period of 7 months. If he enrolls 
during the 3 months prior to the month in which he 
attains age 65, his coverage is effective with the 
month in which he attains age 65 : if he enrolls during 
the month he attains age 65, his coverage begins the 
following month ; if he enrolls in any of the 3 months 



xxvi 



after he attains age 65, his coverage begins from 2 to 
3 months after enrollment, depending on how long he 
waited before enrolling. 

A general enrollment period was set between Octo- 
ber 1, 1967, and March 31, 1968, for those who did not 
enroll in the regular enrollment period, with compa- 
rable periods set to occur in every odd-numbered year 
from October through December. A person who en- 
rolls during a general enrollment period may receive 
benefits starting on the first of July following the 
general enrollment period. An eligible individual must 
enroll within 3 years after the close of the first enroll- 
ment period in which he was entitled to enroll in 
order to become a beneficiary. 

An initial general enrollment period was set up at 
the begmning of the program for people who had 
attained age 65 before March 1, 1966. This enrollment 
period began September 1, 1965, and ended on May 
31, 1966, for coverage to begin with the initiation of 
the program on July 1, 1966. 

A State may enroll otherwise eligible individuals 
who receive cash payments under public assistance 
programs if the State requests such a State-Federal 
enrollment agreement to be established and pays the 
necessary premiums. 

Enrollment terminates with the beginning of the 
month following the month of death. In general, rail- 
road retirement beneficiaries and individuals entitled 
to monthly cash social security benefits may terminate 
their enrollment voluntarily by notifying the Social 
Security Administration in writing during a general 
enrollment period of the desire to withdraw from the 
program. Other enrolled persons may terminate their 
coverage by withholding payment of premiums or by 
notifying the Social Security Administration in writ- 
ing of the desire to withdraw from the program. An 
individual who previously has terminated his enroll- 
ment may re-enroll only in a general enrollment pe- 
riod beginning within 3 years of the date his previous 
enrollment had terminated. Re-enrollment, however, 
is allowed only once. 

Financing the Program 

Hospital Insurance. — The hospital insurance pro- 
gram is financed on a long-range, self-supporting 
basis through a separate schedule of increasing tax 
rates on the first $6,600 of earnings in employment 
covered under the Social Security Act with the same 
rate for employees, employers, and self-employed per- 
sons. The earnings base was raised in 1968 to $7,800. 
This rate was 0.35 percent in 1966, 0.50 percent for 
1967, and is scheduled to increase until it is 0.90 per- 
cent in 1987 and thereafter. The proceeds of this tax 
and that collected from the railroad retirement sys- 
tem are placed in a Hospital Insurance Trust Fund^ 
from which reimbursements for all benefits and ad- 
ministrative expenses incurred under the hospital in- 



surance program are paid. The Hospital Insurance 
Trust Fund is reimbursed from general tax revenues 
for the costs of providing coverage for the almost 2i,'2 
million persons who qualify for hospital insurance 
but who are not entitled to monthly social security or 
railroad retirement benefits, that is, those "deemed 
insured." 

Supplementary Medical Insurance. Premiums are 
paid into the Federal Supplementary Medical Insur- 
ance Trust Fund2 by those persons enrolled for supple- 
mentary medical insurance, (or on their behalf) and 
a matching amount is paid from general revenues by 
the Federal Government. 

The premiums of persons receiving social security 
cash benefits, railroad retirement, or Federal civil 
service annuities are deducted from their monthly 
benefit checks. Persons not receiving monthly benefits 
are billed quarterly for premiums by the Social Se- 
curity Administration or Railroad Retirement Board 
and have a 90-day grace period in which to make 
payment. Premiums may be paid for as long as a year 
in advance, and for individuals financially unable to 
make quarterly payments, arrangements can be made 
for monthly payments. 

The premium rate of the supplementary medical 
insurance program may be adjusted annually if medi- 
cal costs rise. The law requires that the rate be set at 
an amount that will generate income to the fund suf- 
ficient to cover benefit payments and administrative 
costs incurred during the year. The monthly premium 
was set at $3 beginning with July 1966 and remained 
at this level until April 1968 when it was raised to $4 
per month. 

States are permitted to enter into agreements with 
the Secretary, based on a request made before Janu- 
ary 1, 1970, to buy in — that is, to pay the medical 
insurance premiums — for public assistance recipients 
aged 65 or over who were receiving money payments 
under an approved public assistance plan and for all 
aged persons eligible to receive medical assistance 
under an approved Title XIX plan. 



Administration of the Program 

Hospital Insurance. — Under the hospital insurance 
plan, groups or associations of providers, on behalf of 
their members, may nominate a national. State, or 
other public or private agency or organization to 
serve as intermediary in the claims process. A mem- 
ber of an association is free, however, to receive pay- 
ment from an approved intermediary other than its 
association's nominee, if approved by the Secretary 
and agreeable to the intermediary selected. In addi- 
tion, a provider may deal directly with the Social 
Security Administration.

The Secretary may enter into an agreement with a 
nominated organization if he finds this to be consist- 
ent with effective and efficient administration of the 
hospital insurance program. The intermediary makes 
payments to providers for covered items and services 
on the basis of reasonable cost determinations and 
assists in the application of safeguards against unnec- 
essary utilization of covered services. The agreement 
may also call for (1) furnishing consultative services 
to assist providers to establish and maintain neces- 
sary fiscal records and otherwise qualify as providers 
of services, (2) serving as a center for communicat- 
ing with providers, and (3) making audits of provi- 
der records. Generally speaking, the Social Security 
Administration utilizes the services of the hospital 
insurance intermediary in making payments for home 
health and outpatient hospital services covered under 
the supplementary medical insurance program. 

Payment may be made for a beneficiary for covered 
emergency inpatient hospital services where the hos- 
pital is not a participating facility and agrees not to 
charge the beneficiary for covered services. Such a 
hospital may be outside the United States if it is more 
accessible than the nearest hospital in the United 
States adequately equipped to treat the patient. 

Requests for payment for covered services must be 
signed by the beneficiary (or someone for him, if he is 
unable to do so) . Payments are made on the basis of 
reasonable costs for these services to participating 
providers of services, that is, hospitals, extended care 
facilities, and home health agencies, who have been 
certified for participation. 

In some instances, hospitals may bill for physician 
services rendered to inpatients. In these cases, in- 
terim payment is made from the HI trust fund. Sub- 
sequently, funds are transferred from the SMI trust 
fund to the HI trust fund to cover the cost of these 
services. 

The intermediary selected by the provider reviews 
the claims for payment and pays the provider. Actual 
payment is made on the basis of an interim rate es- 
tablished between the provider and the intermediary. 
Final settlement for each provider's operating year is 
made on the basis of a cost report submitted by the 
provider, and subject to an independent audit. 

No payments can be made to Federal providers of 
services except for emergency services, unless this 
provider serves as a community institution. In addi- 
ton, payment cannot be made to a provider for those 
services it is obligated to render at public expense 
under Federal law or contract. 

Supplementary Medical Insurance. — Under the 
medical insurance program, the Secretary of Health, 
Education, and Welfare may enter into contracts with 
carriers for the performance of specified administra- 
tive functions. The carriers' principal function is to 



determine whether charges are allowable (reasona- 
ble) and to make payments. 

The carrier selected by the Secretary of Health, 
Education, and Welfare to serve as an intermediary 
determines the allowed charges for bills submitted for 
each medical care service covered by the program and 
pays 80 percent of this amount after the $50 deducti- 
ble has been met. 

The allowed charge for the service may be paid to 
the patient, or the patient may assign the bill for 
collection to the physician or other supplier of the 
service if he is willing to accept assignment. In the 
former situation, the patient first pays the bill and 
submits the receipted bill to the carrier and is reim- 
bursed, and, in the latter, the physician or other sup- 
plier submits the bill and is reimbursed. When the 
payment is made directly to the physician (or sup- 
plier) on assignment, the allowed charge determined 
by the carrier is the total charge. In both situations, 
the patient is responsible for the first $50 of the 
charges for covered services he receives during the 
year and the amount of the bill over 80 percent of the 
allowed charges. 

The law instructs the carrier to consider the follow- 
ing criteria in determining the "allowed" charge : 

(1) the customary charge for the service gener- 
ally made by the physician or other person furnishing 
such services ; and 

(2) the prevailing charge in the locality by other 
physicians and suppliers for similar services. 

The law also specifies that the "allowed" or reasona- 
ble charge cannot be higher than the charge applica- 
ble for a similar service rendered under comparable 
circumstances to the carriers' own policy holders or 
subscribers. 

Carriers also have the authority and responsibility 
to determine, in a given case, whether a claim is for a 
covered service and to deny claims for noncovered or 
excluded items or services. In addition, carriers are to 
assist in the application of safeguards against the 
furnishing of unnecessary services to eligible individ- 
uals. 

Most services covered by the medical insurance pro- 
gram are rendered on a fee-for-service basis. How- 
ever, services furnished under group practice prepay- 
ment plans are normally rendered in return for pre- 
determined premium payments. In recognition of the 
need for special adaptation of the Medicare payment 
procedures for services rendered by group practice 
prepayment plans, the law provides that an organiza- 
tion which furnishes medical and other health serv- 
ices (or arranges for their availability) on a prepay- 
ment basis, may elect to be paid 80 percent of the 
reasonable cost of services in lieu of 80 percent of the 
allowed charge for such services.

Notes 



The sample: Except for figures on the enrolled pop- 
ulation and on home health services, all data shown 
in this report are based on the experience of a 5- 
percent sample of the enrolled population. The sample 
selection was determined by specified digits of the 
individual's Health Insurance claim number. The en- 
rolled population is a complete count of the file; fig- 
ures will be published in this report series in Social 
Security Administration, Office of Research and Sta- 
tistics, Medicare: Health Insurance for the Aged, 
1967, Section 2: Enrollment (in preparation). Fig- 
ures on home health services are also a complete 
count. The reliability of the sample is discussed under 
"Reliability of Estimates." Except for tables 1.5 and 
1.13, and as noted above, figures are sample counts 
multiplied by 20. 

Health Insurance for the Aged: The program, com-

leases since 1967. Issues released prior to 1970 are out of print, but 
available in many libraries. 

The Current Medicare Survey (CMS) series, based on data 
from the continuing Current Medicare Survey, has also included 
numerous releases since 1967. These issues are available in most 
libraries. 

Future releases in the HI and CMS series may be obtained upon 
request to the Publications Staff, Office of Research and Statistics, 
Social Security Administration, Room 3643, HEW North Building,

The Social Security Bulletin, published monthly, presents au- 
thoritative articles and analyses of medical care expenditures, 
prices, and utilization as v^^ell as current operating statistics from 
the Medicare program. The Annual Statistical Supplement to the 
Bulletin includes summary data on trust funds, services, claims, 
enrollment, average charges and participating providers of serv- 
ice under Medicare. The Bulletin, including the Supplement, is

outlays, and expenditures. The series is available in many libraries.
